The developer, Night School Studio, is bringing its creepy, narrative-driven debut title Oxenfree to PlayStation 4, and those wanting to play it on console will be able to experience some unique features and a New Game Plus mode.

Night School’s co-founder, Sean Krankel, announced the PS4 version on the PlayStation Blog, detailing the New Game Plus mode, which will make its way to Xbox One and PC as well. The new mode is a continuation of Oxenfree’s story and features new locations and additional endings. After completing the story once, players can start another game and experience new dialogue and “a creeping sense of deja vu.”

Krankel said in a press release,

“Fans have become so attached to Alex and her friends, so we created this New Game Plus mode to let them impact and continue her story in a crazy way that both deepens the experience and makes it highly repayable. We want everyone to get lost in the world of Oxenfree for a long time.”

Additionally, the PS4 version added some new features that will utilize the DualShock 4’s speaker and light bar. The in-game broadcasts will play through it and syncing the color glow respectively.

The PS4 will also receive a dynamic theme based on Oxenfree, which will feature a “dynamically evolving version of” the game’s setting, Edwards Island. The best part about the background is the scene will change based on the real time of the day.

The Playstation 4 version of Oxenfree is due out on May 31st. This includes the New Game Plus as well. Everyone who owns the game will get an in-game behind-the-scenes documentary series, featuring the process of Oxenfree‘s development from inception to release.
